Re: Reading ElmerSolver Results

Hi,

the extension .ep is for ElmerPost, the old Elmer postprocessor which is not supported any more.
If you want to use ParaView (which is recommended), just change the post file extension in the Simulation section to .vtu.

HTH,

Re: Multiple bodies from STEP file

Hi,

you can use Salomé: import the STEP file in the geometry module, make a partition, switch to the meshing module and mesh it.
gmsh should also be able to do it thanks to the OpenCascade Kernel, but I don't know the exact steps to follow.

HTH,

Re: Lua functionality in Elmer

Hi, if I understand corrctly, if you don't use LUA, it will not be active and you should see no difference due to LUA. So either your old sif files contain expressions which activate LUA unintentionnally, or there is another problem. You might post the sif file and the error message here so that som...

Re: Artery flow

Hi,

quickly without looking at the case in the tutorial, I would suspect that there is a user defined function called something like motion.f90 which you need to compile using the elmerf90 compiler.

Re: Electrostatic: Microstrip

Hi, I suspect that the meshes for the two bodies are not connected. You can check that by zooming to the interface in gmsh. The problem should be solvable in gmsh - I think you have to give a coherence command before meshing. You might ask on the gmsh mailing list if the problem persists. Or else yo...

Re: Acoustics Simulation (from Comsol to Elmer)?

So, what I'm trying is to recreate the geometry in Inventor and then export as a .step file to gmsh/Salome. The only way I'm doing this is so I can dump to a Python script (there is an option in Salome), so I can parameterize the model and create different versions of it. You can also create the mo...

Re: Acoustics Simulation (from Comsol to Elmer)?

Hi,

what kind of problems do you have for meshing with gmsh / Salomé?
Both can be scripted, so normally it should be possible to do what you outline.

Hi,

images are displayed inline if they are not larger than 1024x768 pixels.

Yes, that's why I just uploaded them instead.
But now you know why... ;)

Re: Run ElmerGUI ECMAScript without opening ElmerGUI and ElmerVTK postprocessor

Hi, I don't know to what extent ElmerPost is scriptable. It is outdated anyway. ParaView can execute Python scripts, but I don't know if it can automatically generate images without firing up the GUI. gmsh also has a postprocessor and is scriptable, and Elmer's ResultOutputSolver can write gmsh post...
